Congratulations Chef Ed Cotton

It looks like Chef Ed is emerging from the shadows of the alpha males and becoming the new contender in Top Chef DC. During the daunting Restaurant Wars Challenge, Ed was named the victor with his Pan Poached Turbot with Eggplant Caviar, Black Olive Jus, and Fennel and Onion Saffron Fondue.

In a menu of proteins including steak and lamb, Ed's turbot was judged to be the standout. Also, while Angelo flamed out as self-proclaimed head chef and Alex stumbled both in food prep and front-of-the-house management, Chef Ed coolly focused on his food. With Chef Kenny now out of the running, it will be interesting to see how Chef Ed fares through the rest of the competition.

This post is only for positive comments about Chef Ed Cotton. If you have negative comments regarding Chef Ed Cotton or about the episode, please leave them here.

Ed has been pretty steady this season, I believe that he has been in the bottom three just once. He works very hard and is a great team player, I predict he will be in the final three.
